The Kilmarnock result on Wednesday was a sickener for Rangers fans.
For three weeks Rangers have lorded it over Celtic and had their rivals running scared. The Scottish Premiership momentum was with the Ibrox side.
But after flying high the Gers have just handed Celtic the upper hand, knocking the wind right out of supporter’s sails in the process. They’ll be getting used as curtains for any title race if we don’t get three points on Sunday.

It just had to be Jordan Jones who scored the winning goal too. Football is a cruel game at times.
As a result, some have turned their ire to the Northern Irishman.

Jones not to blame for last night’s result

Jones signed a pre-contract with Rangers at the beginning of the month that’ll see him move to Ibrox in June. After signing on at Ibrox he was forced to apologise to Killie fans after posting about the move on social media.
But on forums and social media certain fans have been outspoken against the winger, particularly for his celebrations with mentor and manager Steve Clarke and the interview he gave post-match. It’s utter nonsense.
Jones is a professional with a point to prove after signing for Rangers. He’s also still a Kilmarnock player.

He clearly feels he owes Killie and Clarke for how they’ve developed him as a footballer and last night he also showed why Rangers were so determined to sign him.
The Kilmarnock result was down to individual mistakes, inexperience and stubbornness on the touchline, and a lack of quality/leadership on the pitch.
And even if he did score the winner, that’s not the fault of Jordan Jones.
